Llewellyn’s Spell a Day

The Parking Space Word
Spell Date: Sunday, February 25, 2018

No matter where you live, if you drive a car, you need to park it somewhere—at home, at work, wherever you go. Whether you’re at the mall or driving around a neighborhood that has more multi-family dwellings than there are parking spaces, you need to park your car.

As you search for that almost invisible parking space, speak the parking space word:

“ZZZZZAAAAAAZZZZZ!”

Speak it loud and with great energy. It seems to work best if you plan ahead and say where you want to park. Therefore, speak the parking space word when you turn a corner or enter the parking lot:

“ZZZZZAAAAAZZZZZ!
Parking space at ___________.”

Be aware that the word works, but not always immediately. Sometimes you have to drive around the block or around the lot. Repeat the word every time you turn a corner. It will work.

Cabin Fever Release
Spell Date: Saturday, February 24, 2018

Home is where the heart is, but by the end of February, those who live in cold-winter states may be feeling anything but “homey.” Cabin fever has set in and taken its toll, and people want to get out and have fun again. The holidays are over and boredom may be prevalent. Use this day to have some fun.

March is just around the corner, followed by spring, but it may still seem like a long way off. Have a fun game night to bring some cheer back into your life. Invite family and friends, Pagan or not. At the beginning of the evening, ask everyone to give thanks in their own way for something they appreciate. It may be about spending time with friends or family or something completely different. Sometimes we just need to let off steam and share reminders about the good in our lives.

Beneficial Boundaries
Spell Date: Friday, February 23, 2018

Historically the Roman festival of Terminalia was held on February 23, honoring Terminus, the god who protected boundary markers. Today is a great day to invoke healthy boundaries, both physical and emotional, and consciously set them.

If you have neighbors, make an effort to exchange good energy with them. Even if you don’t see them, you can do a quick shovel of their walkway or some other task. The act of doing good for your neighbor energetically sets the stage for a good relationship.

While you are doing simple physical tasks, take time to walk the boundary between your properties and invoke Terminus:

“Terminus, guide us to live in peace.
I respect my neighbor;
may they respect me.
Protect our boundaries so
we can live in ease,
Terminus, now be here with me.”

As you walk the property boundary, know that you are simultaneously setting your own healthy boundary and observing your neighbor’s boundary.

The Earth Awakens
Spell Date: Thursday, February 22, 2018

Traditionally on this day, maple trees are tapped and maple syrup production begins. Sap has begun to rise, and now the earth awakens! This ritual will allow you to help the earth awaken from its winter rest, and will help awaken your winter-weary spirit too.

First gather some soil in a flowerpot. If the ground is too frozen, then use potting soil. Place the potted soil before a fire or a lit orange candle. Sprinkle the soil lightly with water. Hold your hands over the soil, gaze at the fire or burning candle, and say:

“Spring will come and summer too,
Earth spirit, hear the words I speak to you.
Cold and silent you have laid,
Arise now from your winter grave.
Let the life spirit in every plant and seed begin to swell,
Sustain us all, and keep us well.”

End the ritual by scattering the soil outside.

Honoring the Shades
Spell Date: Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Ancient Romans observed this day as Feralia, which was the last of three festivals that honored the dead. They took offerings to the tombs and laid them out to appease the spirits. While we are not always able to take offerings to the tombs of our loved ones, we can still honor their spirits, commune with them, and provide offerings to them.

Begin by creating sacred space around the altar you will be working with. Call the names of the deceased you wish to honor. Take salt, bread, and flowers and place them in an offering bowl on your altar. The salt will keep them from lingering too long, the bread will nourish their soul, and the flowers will show your appreciation for their presence in your life. Invite them to stay for the day within that sacred space, and be open to any messages they may have.

Strength and Courage Spell
Spell Date: Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Some days you need a boost of strength and courage. That’s okay. We all do from time to time, whether we show it outwardly or not.

For this spell, gather the following three items: a polished piece of bloodstone, an image of the Strength card from the tarot, and a white candle. Bloodstone vibrates with the energy of courage, which pairs nicely with the type of strength symbolized by the Strength card. We need not always exert brute force to be strong. We can use our will, compassion, and intellect to exert our strength.

Place the image of the Strength card upon your altar, with the candle and bloodstone atop it. Light the candle and visualize the bloodstone absorbing both the courageous light of the candle and the strength of the card. Carry the bloodstone with you.

Make Up Your Own Mind to Be Happy
Spell Date: Monday, February 19, 2018

Abraham Lincoln said, “Most folks are about as happy as they make up their mind to be.” And according to the hermetic law of polarity, happy and unhappy—like other pairs of opposites—are simply two poles of the exact same thing. Although it sounds simplistic, we can envision our happiness level as a dimmer switch, and we can make the conscious decision to turn it up.

Close your eyes and see your inner happiness switch. If it’s not all the way up, turn it up and see your world get brighter. Open your eyes and take some steps on the physical plane to turn up your happiness as well: get rid of old clutter, diffuse moodboosting essential oil, bring in fresh flowers, or donate any decoration in your space that doesn’t lift your spirits. And today, every time you have an opportunity to smile or laugh, take it!

Heartwings Love Notes 816 Simple, Inexpensive Fish recipes

Heartwings says, “Fish is good food for us all.”

Increasing amounts of information is has come out about how good fish is for you. Many believe they don’t like it because they have not had it cooked properly. White fish takes very little time to cook: one of my recipes takes about 15 minutes or so and the other between 25 and thirty. You will surely have all the ingredients on hand in your kitchen as well. I so dislike seeing an intriguing recipe only to discover one or more of the ingredients have to be bought from a specialty market.

Two of our favorite kinds of fish are flounder and cod. I used to think cod was only good for chowder until I created this recipe for it. It also makes use of corn chips that didn’t get eaten while fresh. Stephen crunches ours up. Children love to do this too. Stephen and I usually dine well on around a pound or a bit less of fish of either variety. It’s nice to have fresh fish, however the flash frozen is almost as good. I do not fry fish, thus avoiding odors and extra fat.

Baked Cod with Crumbled Corn Chips
Preheat oven to 350 or 325 for a glass dish.
Ingredients: for 2
¼ to 1/3 cups ground corn chips
A pound or so of cod
Around ¼ cup good mayonnaise. Do not use low fat
1 TBS so of horseradish sauce. It adds a bit of “sass” to the fish

Method: Lay fish flat in baking dish. Mix up Mayonnaise and Horseradish sauce, spread evenly over cod. Bake in oven and depending on thickness of fish check after 20 to 30 minutes. Fish should flake away easily and have lost its transparency. Serve with broccoli and a simple salad or coleslaw.

Poached Flounder Filets
This cooks quickly, so have the rest of your dinner ready before adding the fish.
Ingredients:
2 cups water
¼ cups diced celery,
2 Tbs diced onion
OR if in a hurry, dried onion and celery seed about 2 Tbs each)
1 pound flounder filets

Method: Use a large frying pan. Bring water to a boil and add vegetables, fresh or dried. Let them simmer for 15 minutes or so for fresh less for dried. Then lay flounder filets in pan and turn over after 3 or 4 minutes. Serve with spinach and a salad or squash.

May you enjoy your cooking, whatever you make.

Blessings and best regards, Tasha Halpert

Heartwings Love Notes 815: The Climate of Violence Around Us

Heartwings says, “Let peace be the solution and conflict be resolved.

The Olympic Games originated as a way for nations to compete without killing each other in wars. It is inspiring to see the athletes of today carrying on this tradition. Unfortunately, despite peaceful athletic competition, today’s youth is growing up in a climate of violence. Most newspapers feature that, rather than focus on what is peaceful. Good news is often buried somewhere within the paper almost like a footnote. What has the acceptance of conflict as perhaps the only way to resolve issues done to young minds and hearts.

Yet it is not only the immediate media we encounter daily that does this, there is also the tenor of our language. We speak of “fighting” bad conditions, disease, and what we dislike in the world. Killing is a casual term for stopping or eliminating: “kill that” article or image. The majority of video games seem to be about fighting and destruction. Comic books and illustrated novels have similar themes. When I was growing up there were curbs on the ugly and the dreadful. There was a comic code whose job it was to protect young children.

Now there seem to be no limits and no safeguards for young minds. When I was young we had bomb drills in our schools, yet the war was far away and no immediate threat. Today children have drills to rehearse for someone coming into the school and shooting them. How can this make them feel? A friend spoke of their child in college as being potentially unsafe in his school. No one ought to have to go through life feeling fearful, yet that is how things seem to be today.

Fear and anxiety separate us from one another. Love and acceptance bring us together. While no one person can make more than a small difference, whatever any of us can do to generate peaceful acceptance of each other’s differences and live in cooperation with each other contributes to a happier world. Where conflict resolution is taught in schools, violence greatly diminishes. Let us do what we can to encourage acclimate of peace. Youth no longer bathed in violence will be free to see the world differently and react toward it accordingly.

May you find ways to spread peace and love wherever you are.

Blessings and best regards, Tasha Halpert

PS How do you feel about this climate of violence and what do you think we can do to help? I so love to hear from readers, and thank you for responding.

American Scene
by Stephen Halpert

Domestic Tranquility: The Other Side of The Highway

As we were drove home from Westborough one day last summer, we passed a large tent and folding chairs stacked outside a farmhouse. “Looks like someone’s getting ready to throw a party,” Tasha said.
I sighed. “Another celebration we weren’t invited to. No doubt it will be quite a shindig.”
“But we don’t even know the people living there. How could you expect an invitation to something you don’t know about hosted by someone you’ve never met?”
“Happens all the time if you’re a celebrity in the public eye. Can you imagine how much chicken the Governor gets served by people he doesn’t know?”
“But that’s different,” she grinned. “Some people like having celebrities hobnobbing at their events.”
I nodded. “Kind of like expensive wall candy. Makes an insignificant host stand out because Harrison Ford or Sharon Stone’s drinking chocolate martinis on the patio. But until recently I always thought we had some sort of low-end celebrity status. After all we’re both columnist and you’re on TV.”
She laughed and shook her head. “I don’t think so. Besides do you have any idea how expensive it is to cater anything these days, especially a wedding? Why do you suppose the trend is for people to have smaller ones limited to immediate family and just a handful of close friends?”
“Because half of them end up in divorce?”
“Oh dear, look,” she said as she swerved to avoid hitting a rabbit and a squirrel that were taking their time to cross the road.
“An omen,” I laughed. “Maybe we should turn around and go back and tell the people at the house you just did them a big favor.”
“What do you mean?”
“Think about it.” Pretend this is something out of an Andrew Lang fairy tale, or even one of Aesop’s fables. Suddenly out of nowhere the saga of the rabbit and squirrel begins.”” The sky began to darken and raindrops pelted the windshield.
She laughed. “And as a result of the kindly lady watching the road and swerving her car so as not to hit the rabbit and the squirrel what happens next?”
“It’s obvious to me,” I smiled. “The rabbit and the squirrel get to live another day. The young couple have a few dozen kids and squirrel away tons of money they win during their pricey honeymoon in Vegas.”
“How about the driver of the car? Does she get to benefit in some small way?”
“Absolutely! She buys a winning scratch ticket and uses her loot to pay for a carwash.”
She grinned. “That’s one of the most farfetched things I’ve ever heard. Besides Aesop always had a grand moral at the end of his fables.”
“The stuff of myths. Maybe the rabbit and the squirrel might ask the chicken if it made any sense to bother crossing the road. Then they’d know first hand and quite possibly realize how happy they were right there in their own back yard.”
“It always makes sense to cross the road,” she said firmly. “Why if the road were never crossed where would we be as a society?”
“We’d consume a lot less oil if we stayed on our side of the road; let alone avoid having to go to war, not to mention the exploitation of the environment and need for guns. ”
Even though we could see clear skies in the distance the rain fell harder. Tasha slowed down. “Be careful or people might call you an isolationist. Do we need anything at the farm stand?”
“They’d be right. I am. Ever since I read Washington’s Farewell Address I cast a jaundiced eye toward foreign intervention. He warned against America getting involved in shady underhanded European monetary exploits. But who listened? Certainly not today’s members of Congress. Let’s stop and buy some peaches.”
We pulled into the small parking area. As a courtesy the rain slowed and the sun started to come out from where it had been hiding.. “Maybe we’ll see a rainbow.” Tasha said.
Fresh fruit greeted us. “See how lucky things can be when one’s watchful of the road and avoids hitting a rabbit and a squirrel?”
We bagged up our fruit. “Costs more than last year,” I said as we started off.”
“Probably because it was picked on the other side of the road. But everything’s more expensive, haven’t you noticed?”
“So that explains it.”
“Explains what?”
“Pull over and let’s see if there’s a rainbow.”
She did. “What explains what?”
“Why the rabbit and the squirrel were crossing the road. It’s pretty obvious, don’t you think?” We got out and looked up into the sky.
“Do tell! I’m missing something.”
“They knew it was going to rain. Creatures seem to know these things faster than we humans. Or maybe they were eloping-brave of them considering how ostracized they’d be. After all how often do you see a rabbit and a squirrel set up housekeeping let alone taking a stroll together?”
“Never mind,” she smiled. “Look up and make a wish.”
It amazing rainbow, taking up the entire was an horizon. We stood gazing for a few minutes and then got back into the car.
“Care to share your wish?” she asked as we approached home.”I wished for our happiness to always continue. How about you?”
“I wished for the rabbit and the squirrel to have continued happiness too.” I smiled “Seems obvious to me that unless that wish comes true their fate could prove to be rather Grimm.”

Sacred & Blessing Herbs ~ Smudging
by SunKat

Smudging
The act of smudging is done with a smudge bowl or Abalone Shell with the appropriate herbs directly lit or burned on a coal or Charcoal Tablet. When using charcoal tablets, the bowl or shell should be filled with sand or a flat stone to prevent overheating the container. Smudging is also done with herbs tied in bundles called Smudge Sticks. In either case the smoke is ‘washed’ over the person or object with a Feather or by fanning the smoke with one’s hand.
To do a blessing of a person, begin by looking into the eyes of the person for a moment to ‘greet’ them, fan the smoke first at their heart and then up to the right side (your left) of the person’s head, moving around clockwise (sun-wise), gently washing them with the smoke. Continue brushing smoke down over their left shoulder and the length of their arm and back up again to the shoulder. Wash the smoke down the left side of the torso, left leg and foot. Now smudge the right foot, up the left leg, torso and down the length of the right arm and back up to the shoulder. Now turn the person around, turning to their right (sun-wise again) and repeat these movements as you smudge and bless the person’s back. For objects, bless them moving sun-wise around them also.

Smudging in the Seven Directions
Facing East – I welcome the energy of the beginning way, the rising sun at the beginning of the day and the light of illumination. Welcome Eagle, flying nearest the heavens, with the clearest of vision. I welcome the energies and spirits of the East. HO!
Facing South – I welcome the energy of service to all my relatives, the heat of the noonday sun and the spirit of action in the world. Welcome Coyote spirit. I welcome the energies and spirits of the South. HO!
Facing West – I welcome the energy of looking within to find the gifts of healing. Welcome Bear spirit going deep within to seek the gift of renewal. I welcome the energies and spirits of the West. HO!
Facing North – I welcome the energy of wisdom and blessing and the Grandmothers and Grandfathers who teach me. Welcome Buffalo and the spirit of giveaway, teach me to be generous and honor all that I receive. I welcome the energies and spirits of the North. HO!
Looking up – I welcome the energy and spirit of Above. Father Sky, Star people, and Cloud people. Welcome all that is masculine, grandfathers, fathers, brothers, uncles and sons. And that masculine energy that also exists within the feminine. I welcome the energies and spirits of Father Sky. HO!
Looking down (touching the ground) – I welcome the energy of Mother Earth, the feminine principle, the energy and spirit of Below. I welcome the energy and the spirit of our grandmothers, our mothers, sisters, aunties and daughters. And that feminine energy that exists within the Masculine. I welcome the energies and spirits of Mother Earth. HO!
Looking within (holding your hands over your heart) – I welcome the energy of Within, the principle of being connected, the energy and spirit of Within. I welcome the gifts of balance, oneness, and the connection with all things, for all things are one and all things are related. HO!

Smudging and Blessing Herbs
Sage
The use of sage is for healing. The smoke is used to bless, cleanse and heal the person or object being smudged. Sage is used to ‘wash off’ the outside world when one enters ceremony or other sacred space. Objects are likewise washed off with sage medicine smoke to rid them of unwanted influences.The plants that are called sage can come from very different families of plants. True sages are in the genus of Salvia; this includes Salvia Officinalis (garden sage) and Salvia Apiana (White Sage), also called California White Sage and Sacred Sage. Many of the herbs called sage come from a completely different family of plants, the Asteracea family. This family brings us the genus of Artemisia from which come New Mexico Sage (Artemisia tridentada), and the sage from the Dakotas (Artemisia ludoviciana), also called Grey sage, Prairie sage, Dakota sage, Lakota Sage and mistakenly sometimes called White sage. All of these sages (Salvia and Artemisia) are used for healing and cleansing. More can be learned from the book Sacred Sage, How It Heals.

Cedar
Cedar is a medicine of protection. Cedar trees are very old, wise and powerful spirits. Cedar is often used to cleanse a home or apartment when first moving in, inviting unwanted spirits to leave and protecting a person, place or object from unwanted influences. Cedar is used as a name for a number of different genuses of trees and shrubs. The primary ones are Cedrus, Thuja, Libdocedrus and Juniperus. The Junipers are not truly Cedars (scientifically) but are used as such by many people. Keep in mind that these scientific names have little meaning to the people using them as medicine in traditional ways.

Sweetgrass
Also called Seneca grass, holy grass and vanilla grass. This very special herb’s sweet vanilla-like scent is the breath of the Earth mother, bringing the blessing of Mother Earth’s love. Sweetgrass is burned to remind us of essence of the feminine and that the earth provides us with everything we need. Sweetgrass can also be be unbraided or trimmed with a scissors into small pieces and sprinkled on hot Charcoal Tablets. Allow the sacred smoke that follows to wash over the subject of the blessing. The sacredness of the sweetgrass herb then sustains the smudging process. Use a smudging feather if you need to douse the flame or promote more smoke.

Lavender
This native of Europe is often used for invitation of the spirits. The name may be derived from the Latin lavare (to wash) or livendula (meaning bluish). In ancient times lavender was an important herb used in mummification. There is a legend that the clothing of baby Jesus was laid upon a lavender bush and acquired the fragrance. Some Christians still regard the scent of lavender as a safeguard against evil. Burning Lavender is best done on Charcoal Tablets.

Copal
This is tree sap from Mexico that is similar to Frankincense. When burned it has a crisp, clean, sharp scent that is almost citrus-like. Copal is sacred to the native peoples of Mexico, as it is a gift ‘pleasing to the gods.’ Because copal is the blood of trees, it is offered to honor the enormous gift given to us by all of the tree people of our planet. Burning Copal is best done on Charcoal Tablets.

Frankincense
At one time both Frankincense and Myrrh were considered to be more valuable than gold. Used to embalm the bodies of the Egyptian Pharaohs, this tree resin is considered to cleanse and protect the soul. Frankincense became important to most every major religion in the world and is still used in Muslim, Jewish and Catholic rituals. Frankincense is said to ease depression and promote clairvoyance. Burning Frankincense is best done on Charcoal Tablets.

Myrrh
This tree resin is said to help one maintain a state of enlightenment. It also connects one to the spirit of youth and clears the path of debris that stands in the way of one’s truth. Burning Myrrh is best done on Charcoal Tablets.

Smudging Feather
It is traditional to use a bird’s feather to brush the smoke over the person or object being blessed. It is important to use the underside of the feather to wash the smoke over the object of blessing. It is the underside of the bird and its wings that face the Mother Earth as it flies and it is this surface of the feather that offers the blessing medicine of the bird.

Other Important Herbs
Mullein
An herb that has been used in smoking blends for the sacred pipe, also used as a tea for lung inflammation. Mullein is also called Yerba del lobo, velvet plant and miner’s candlestick.

Red Willow Bark
This is another traditional ingredient for smoking in the pipe. It is not really a willow, but a dogwood. Sioux people call this bark Chanshasha.

Osha Root
This is one of the roots called Bear Root. This plant grows mainly in the Rocky mountains and is used to invite the bear spirit medicine. Osha is an important medicine for people from northern Mexico to Canada, often used for infections.

Uva Ursi
Called Kinnikinnik by many people, this is another plant used in pipe smoking mixtures. Uva ursi is commonly used as tea for bladder infections.

Runes are Ancient Sacred Symbols

Originating in Northern and Western Europe. They have been used for thousands of years.
https://rainbowravensnook.wordpress.com/

Each rune symbol has a name which reflects its sound, and a series of related meanings, they are easy to use, but very powerful in effect.

The word Rune mean “A Mystery “ or “To Whisper “ knowledge of runes has been passed down through the generations, it is only in recent times that there has been written history and instruction on how to use them.

I treat my runes similar to Tarot, though they are different from tarot, runes are not concerned with prediction they are similar to the Chinese oracle Iching.

It is useful to add your personal touch to them… tuning in will help you to become familiar with them, adding your own energy to them.. It is also great to make your own personal set, you can use pebbles/stones/clay or wood and etch in the symbols.

They can be used as a source of advice and inspiration, offering an idea of possible courses of action and likely results.

Runes are made of natural substances, such as smooth river stones, clay, wood or crystal, this allows for earthiness and a connection with the element forces.

There are 24 runes and one blank in all.

10 are non reversible and 15 may be read upright or reversed.

How to use – Single rune spread

The easiest and most powerful way to read the runes is to focus on one particular issue that is of concern.

Draw a single rune from the bag, using your left hand for intuition. Hold and meditate, see what comes to you first, meditation upon this one symbol will reveal the most beneficial path. (it is a good idea to write down any symbols, feelings, colours or even words, then look up the index at front of book and see what inspiration you may receive from the book…. Choosing a single rune will bring the clearest shortest answer.

There are many different spreads that’s can be used , I find the single rune spread the easiest..

Runes are also often used as a Talisman which can be worn or carried around, you can also incorporate them into ritual work as well and calving into candles.

Aging Parents
By Madisyn Taylor

Dealing with an aging parent is part of the challenges and blessings that are part of the cycle of life.
For most of us a natural part of the cycle of life is when our roles as children start to shift from that into caretaking roles where are parents are concerned. This can be as major moving a parent into a retirement facility, or coming to the realization that it’s necessary to check in with them more often than usual. Whatever the case, such a shift is momentous as it signals a time of confronting our own mortality as we confront that of our parents. In addition, it can bring up issues about how well they cared for us when we were young. We may also find ourselves consumed with fear at the thought of losing them, even if we’ve been on our own for a very long time.

Talking to other friends and family who are going through similar experiences can be a large source of support. They can help us look at both the unresolved past and the unfolding present, and we are free to talk only about ourselves. Sometimes we need the kind of undivided attention a friend can offer in order to deal with the material that comes up at this time of our lives.

In many ways, this time of life signals a rebirth as we examine our individual past, as well as our familial past. As our parents’ lives move toward completion, we are able to see what they did with their time on earth, what we have done so far with our time, and what we might want to do with the time we have left. These challenges and blessings are all part of the cycle of life.

Weekly Horoscopes beginning: Sunday, 25 February 2018

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

If you`re born within cusp period (16 to 26 of any month); you`re advised to read horoscopes of both signs covered by that period. You`re in the border; you may have influences from houses within those signs.

Outlines are longer versions; consists of every possible detail of everyday and based on three parts of each sign: 1st, 2nd & 3rd Decan; that is, any of three divisions of 10° within a sign of the zodiac. Even if you know or don`t know your Decan; I recommend, please read all three Decan.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Aries
Personal theme: I am!!
Fire & cardinal sign: March 21 — April 19

Your horoscope for this week:

While, obviously, you can make plans without the cooperation of others or having the necessary details to hand, it`s not easy. Yet that`s exactly what you`ve been facing. Obviously, it`s been frustrating; but what you`re learning will more than justify the aggravation you`ve faced. Even more, this will force those who`ve sidestepped their responsibilities to give serious thought to what they can, and should, be doing.

You may be going through the motions, but you aren`t getting as much work done as normal. When you push yourself to your limits, you will become mentally and physically exhausted. If outside commitments are getting too much for you and the world seems tough and demanding, there is always your home to retreat to. You need to replenish your energy. Find a quiet place where you can tuck yourself away to clear your mind and recharge.

Maddening as it may be, you simply have to deal with details and administration. It could be that you lose out if you don`t have matters in as clear order as possible by next Friday`s Full Moon. Tempting as it may be to focus on the presentation, it`s as important (and even more so likely) to have the facts right. Though never shy of asking awkward questions, this week someone who`s elusive or even plain conniving, could create difficulties. On the upside however, something that you hid away some time back, might yet prove to be a `silver bullet` – though it could be mid-April before you`re given the opportunity to use it. In the meantime, be prepared for others to be highly emotional toward the end of the week and thus hard to reason with.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Taurus
Personal theme: I have!!
Earth & fixed sign: April 20 — May 20

Your horoscope for this week:

As the week begins, the atmosphere will be so tense you`ll be avoiding even simple issues; but with each passing day, both circumstances and the mood will improve. So much that by its close, when suddenly the mood improves dramatically, you`ll be discussing those topics you regarded as risky. Don`t stop there. Take advantage of this congenial atmosphere to explore new, but controversial, ideas.

Take the lead in an important community initiative while you are at your peak for getting people to work together in harmony. You`ll get lots of satisfaction from making a positive difference. Your zest for life will be infectious, making everyone seem more friendly and anxious to lend a hand whenever and wherever it is needed. You can rely on a newcomer to carry out all promises they are making. A new friend will encourage you to nurture your inner artist.

It wouldn`t be surprising if you got involved in a war of words with someone whose expertise is not as you thought it was or whose language is hard to decode. Resolving this issue before next Friday`s Full Moon perhaps needs to be viewed as a puzzle or quest: the alternative being that you charge like the proverbial bull so creating a new set of problems. On the very considerable upside, your own role as an expert should be enhanced. Though you may not have required qualifications, your experience perhaps sets you apart. By Friday others might wish to have you on their team. This tough is something to consider carefully. Bear in mind that Uranus enters your sign in May and that from then, doing things your way – unencumbered by any restrictions will surely be imperative.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Gemini
Personal theme: I think!!
Air sign: May 21 — June 20

Your horoscope for this week:

Ordinarily, if one plan doesn’t work out, you’ve plenty of others in mind; but there`s one you`re focusing on that`s very special. Yet, you`re not getting the kind of feedback you want. While you`re eager to get things going, be patient. Judging by the fabulous links between your ruler Mercury and fortunate Jupiter in early March, things will fall into place magically, and probably overnight.

You have an opportunity to further a career or personal ambition.. This is your chance to move forward with this project. You are well aware that one particular ship could sail away if you don`t go out to meet it and that`s why this will be the focus of all your efforts. Life is exceptionally challenging, and you may have to contend with some unexpected problems while trying to sort out business or financial details.

Next Friday`s Full Moon should be viewed as marking the start of the next phase in moves that began back in September 2016. These should be given a significant boost by someone who`s seen you cope with extra-ordinary situations in the intervening period and who`s concluded (probably correctly) that you really are the `right` person for a task. Your problem-solving abilities will surely have got you noticed. True, there`s also the possibility that you could make a messy situation even worse by saying something inappropriate mid-week. If you can avoid that – especially when others may be giving their all in a damage limitation exercise already, you could then use your way with words on Friday to secure a deal that would benefit many. Again, assuming that you do resist the urge to speak out of turn, you may discover that something written in late May last year, is the evidence needed to advance your cause.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Cancer
Personal theme: I feel!!
Water & cardinal sign: June 21 — July 22

Your horoscope for this week:

Although every sign will be influenced by the Full Moon, on Friday 2 March, because it accents your perspective on crucial matters, you could be experiencing emotional ups and downs. Tempting as it is to analyse what arises, it will only heighten any anxieties. What`s more, because stunning planetary activity just then promises welcome surprises, events will soon make it clear you`ve nothing to worry about.

A responsibility will be lifted from your shoulders. It won`t be until it has gone that you`ll realise how much of a burden it has been. You might also be better off financially but this will be a minor factor compared with the relief you experience. Most friends are supportive and in synch with you and those who aren`t, you can avoid. Steer clear of cynics and you won`t fall victim to negative thinking.

In the run up to day`s Full Moon involvement in clearing up a muddle seems more likely than not. Unlike those of other signs, you may have the paper-work in order but be scuppered by an emotional reaction. This is where good friends and colleagues should be allowed to step in to assist. In particular, someone (most probably born under one of the Earth signs of Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) may be of particular assistance. This may be one of those occasions where you don`t need to solve everything but instead rely on others to do their jobs well. Actually, you could view this as giving them the opportunity to shine. Bear in mind that career-wise it`s probable a curious opportunity could present mid-April and may well be a direct result of the network you engage with this week.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Leo
Personal theme: I will!!
Fire & fixed sign: July 23 — August 22

Your horoscope for this week:

For ages you`ve sensed you`d have to rethink certain longstanding arrangements in your personal or working life but hoped this could wait. It can`t. However, unexpected events are forcing everybody, to conduct a similar review. That being the case, make a point of talking things over with others, ideally at length. Address your own concerns, too.. You`ll find they `re unexpectedly helpful with questions you`re wrestling with.

Circumstances fall in such a way that you should be able to turn your hand to a variety of tasks and make a success of them all. You can anticipate all challenges involved in anything you are working on. This ability will be especially valuable in a group project where a high degree of versatility is called for to keep the project running smoothly. Hard work pays off and your confidence will build as you throw yourself into new projects.

It would be understandable if you felt that you were feeling your way in the dark – at least until mid-week.. You`re probably right to detect many undercurrents at work and a lack of coherent direction. At a simple level it may be that someone is taking a long time to make up their mind. A further possibility though is that they too are awaiting information. That could come thick and fast in early March though requiring you to then be at the ready and available for action. With that in mind, you could make good use of this week to `fill your store cupboard` (i.e. be prepared). A strong possibility (bearing in mind Friday`s Full Moon) is that when a decision is made (by someone following gut instinct), is that they will need you to ensure that what they hope can happen is made real.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Virgo
Personal theme: I analyse!!
Earth sign: August 23 — September 22

Your horoscope for this week:

Planning ahead isn`t just a virtue, because you`re in the run up to the unsettling and probably emotionally intense Virgo Full Moon, on 2 March, you`re seeking the reassurance that comes with being organised; but with the foundation on which both your priorities and those plans would be based shifting, the more flexible your attitude and what you organise is, the fewer dramas you`ll face.

You may at first regret taking on a special job or assignment when you realise how difficult it`s going to be. Take your time with the preliminary stages by finding a quiet corner to give this task your full concentration. This will build the foundation of your project and it will get easier. In the evenings, you will appreciate home cooked meals, relaxing baths and the quiet companionship of your partner and other members of your family.

Your sign is known for skill at multi-tasking: a talent you might need to make much use of this week. It`s probable that there are now many loose ends to tie up and a whole team or distribution line to put into good working order. This though may be something you can achieve by Friday`s Full Moon. By then, and confident that someone (most likely born under Aries, Leo or Sagittarius) now has a plan in mind (or is following good `orders`), you could put a sound strategy in place. Don`t underestimate your ability to put across plans.. Indeed, the lists you make – and the order of priorities should yet ensure successful completion of a project. Note too that what you consider to be a hobby could yet become a second revenue stream before the end of 2020.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Libra
Personal theme: I balance!!
Air & cardinal sign: September 23 — October 22

Your horoscope for this week:

Obviously, you`re tempted to sidestep potentially unsettling issues; but not only are these unavoidable, once you`re actually talking things over, others will be unexpectedly cooperative, and in many cases, you`ll realise these aren`t nearly as complex as you feared. Bizarrely, while you were prepared for the worst, you might well find yourself rethinking plans and looking ahead to all sorts of activities in the future.

A group project will make a giant stride forward. This will bring a mixed reaction and for the most part congratulations will be the order of the day. Any patches of jealousy can be safely ignored as you rejoice in your success. When your focus shifts to money, it will be how to make more, which means you will be considering some unusual ways to move forward in your career. Working for a commission will be profitable for you.

For a sign supposedly wishing to achieve harmony and balance, you can be remarkably good at upsetting the boat! Of course, it may be that what you`re really doing is weighing up pros and cons by putting others in the position where they have to justify their stance. Think carefully though: it may be that you`re pushing someone too fast. Think too not just about the financial implications of a decision, but also the spiritual one. Or, if that`s not comfortable, think what a choice would make to your overall life journey. You might do better to serve quietly for now – especially if dealing with those who`re under emotional distress (which could be obvious around Friday`s Full Moon). At a different level, a design might require extra tweaking. Focusing on professionalism and good quality control might actually be a form of stress relief at present.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Scorpio & Ophiuchus
Personal theme: I desire!!
Water & fixed signs: October 23 — November 21

Your horoscope for this week:

When you`re facing a situation you know is tricky, you`ll take a cautious approach. While, at the moment, that would be logical, you`ll be amazed, and delighted, by the easy-going attitude of those who you expected to be uptight. This is no surprise, since the brilliant alliance between Venus and Mars with fortunate Jupiter promises both an upbeat mood and an equally happy outcome.

The desire to press ahead with long term plans will be in the forefront of your mind. A well-wisher behind the scenes will pull a few strings for you. What you will have to watch for are distractions and diversions from well-intentioned friends. Some people think they`re doing you a favour by providing you with entertainment and you might find it hard to say no to a friend or someone who plays a big part in your life.

It`s entirely probable that you`ll be involved in an argument that`s about ethics of finances or both. Though it`s unlikely that you`ll have doubts about your position, it might be wise to give others chance to explain theirs in full. They may not be entirely coherent either – adding to the stress of the situation. Poor administration, confusion and the `right` people not being in place when you need them could lead to ever greater difficulties. Knowing that there`s a Full Moon on Friday might help. Knowing too that by early next week and the Moon`s arrival in your sign that you could then get your message across should help even more. Midst all this, taking copious notes, and recording meetings where necessary should give you ammunition – should you need it – later.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Sagittarius
Personal theme: I see!!
Fire sign: November 22 — December 21

Your horoscope for this week:

Few things frustrate you more than those who say they`re eager to do something but then take ages to commit; but that`s what you`ve been facing. Don`t lose heart. Your patience will be rewarded but you`ll probably have to wait until the end of the week. Tempting as it is to say a few words of encouragement, you`d regret it. If you can`t remain silent, busy yourself doing something else.

Circumstances beyond your control will badly upset your schedule. You can expect nothing but a series of mishaps and misunderstandings. In the end, you may have to choose between pressing on as best you can or forgetting all about your original plans. Clearing up a backlog of small tasks might be a better idea. Resolving disagreements in your community will be difficult. Neighbours aren`t at their best behaviour and it may be up to you to step in and act as mediator.

Both your domestic and working worlds could be turned upside down. The lead up to Friday`s Full Moon could find you alternately confused as to plans and then accepting of the need to be more organised at the personal level. Indeed, by Friday you might even be showing a flair for organisation that astounds many.. Travel (of the mind if not literal) is often a feature of the Sagittarius life journey. On this occasion though it may not be your own travel that`s in question but that of someone whose life has been turned upside down since the lunar eclipse (in another of the Fire signs) at the end of January and who`s now manoeuvring into fresh waters. To this person, you might appear a wise guide – even to the point of making arrangements on their behalf.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Capricorn
Personal theme: I use!!
Earth & cardinal sign: December 22 — January 19

Your horoscope for this week:

As a Capricorn and an earth sign, you`d never make a promise or commitment without being sure you could fulfill it; but, clearly, not everybody is as conscientious. However, the current planetary setup indicates unexpected difficulties are causing problems in all sorts of ways, possibly for you as well. The solution? Be patient. Not only will this be less stressful, things will work out, but at the right time.

Be prepared for a tough time when nothing will come easily. You will have to exert your power even in the smallest jobs, to overcome a series of difficulties. Keep the pressure on and you will gradually overcome all hazards to achieve a great deal more than you thought possible. There`s serious fun to be had through a group trip or outing. Accept an invitation to a sporting event, concert or cultural gathering.

You could find yourself cross-purposes with those with whom you`re supposed to be working. It may be that lines of communication leave much to be desired. Ye it`s also possible that more facts are coming to light and that before Fridays Full Moon, all will be so much clearer (to you anyway). By Frida, once again your considerable exerts will surely be recognised. More than that, it should be clear that you`re a very much valued member of a team. Keeping calm and carrying on is your natural style – which is perhaps just as well given that emotions could run very high indeed – most probably interfering with progress (at least until Thursday).

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Aquarius
Personal theme: I know!!
Air & fixed sign: January 20 — February 18

Your horoscope for this week:

When you make a plan, you ask the necessary questions then weigh up your options. This means once things are organised, they generally stay that way; but, as you`re discovering, not everybody is as thorough. Worse, one particular individual doesn`t realise the inconvenience their thoughtlessness is causing. While you can`t avoid this, you can busy yourself elsewhere, then avoid the individual in question in the future.

Expect some changes in your usual routine and the first one will come your way very early in the week. Changes will be challenging but positive. Obstacles can be overcome but you will need time to get things sorted out. If you are prepared to work hard, there will be ample reward. Are you single? Your optimistic outlook will attract both love and good fortune. Don`t be in a rush, take your time and enjoy the courtship phase.

You work best when you`re able to understand logic or lines of thought. Presently though, with so many planets moving through Water signs and a Full Moon on Friday, finding even just one line of thought could be hard. It`s probable that others are emotionally disturbed and that the more you try to push them to explain their methods, the more incoherent they become. Consider: could it be that the cosmos is setting you a test in patience? These times too will pass and, soon after the Full Moon (March 2nd), not only might you have better understanding of the numerous conflicting plans suggested, you might also sense that given just a few more weeks, a sound – and appealing to you – plan will emerge.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Pisces
Personal theme: I believe!!
Water sign: February 19 — March 20

Your horoscope for this week:

Every Pisces has at least one vision, if not many. Some involve the coming year, but as often, you`ll have the distant future in mind. While, usually, you discuss these ideas only with those closest, you must now discuss those ideas with somebody whose imagination is limited. That being the case, take it slowly; and be patient. They`ll understand your vision, but probably not right away.

A friend or colleague`s malicious comments will eat away at your self-esteem. You could find yourself worrying over the smallest decisions you have to make. To add to your angsts and anxieties will litter your path. Many of these will be caused by your indecisive mood. You are a caring soul, but some people will take advantage. Be ready to challenge someone`s unreasonable behaviour and instead of giving all your power to someone else, do something nice for yourself.

Matters could move quickly – even requiring you to press down the brakes midweek. In real terms. Ahead of Friday`s Full Moon (in your opposite sign) you could feel pressured. It would be understandable then if you felt the need to ask for more time or to demand that others prove they`re as efficient as they say that they are. You might also require that they explain their moves. That said, it could be you who creates confusion! So yes, a muddly but fast-moving week full of emotion and requiring, by Friday, that you try behaving like a Virgo – being supper-organised. This may be a form of self-protection of course: steeling yourself for bigger decisions and planning to come next week.
